**FR Exclusive** KUCINICH SOLICITS FOREIGN MONEY FOR 2004 ON FOREIGN WEBSITE (JAPANESE) [VIOLATION?]
Global Peace Campaign (Japan) Website in Japanese ^ | 28 July 2003 | AmericanInTokyo

(You will need a browser with Japanese font capability, and ability to comprehend written Japanese)

As a FReeper Researcher, I have just come across a JAPANESE organization, based on an overseas JAPANESE website, in JAPANESE, that is encouraging foreigners to contribute money to and assist the "Campaign for American President Dennis Kucinich".

The URL of the activity was located at:

http://www.peace2001.org/

The organization is called "Global Peace Campaign" located in Japan. It is part of an umbrella of socialist and communist organizations opposing US efforts in Iraq, it supports North Korea, and is aligned with the usual communist movements.

The website has the invitation clearly written in Japanese, on the upper left side of the page, along with a link to the Kucinich campaign in the US, and a photo of the candidate. The organizers specifically solicit 500 Kucinich campaign contributors in Japan as a goal. Below are the comments in Japanese, translated by myself.

[Japanese]: "Dennisu Kusinichu wo amerika no daitoryo ni!"

[English]: "Let's Make Dennis Kucinich the American President!"

[Japanese]: "Dennisu Kusinichu shi no homupaiji --eigo ban"

[English]: "Link to the English Homepage Site for Dennis Kucinich"

[Japanese]: "Amerika no heiwa daitoryo ni. Campaign"

[English]: "Campaign for American Peace President!"

[Japanese]: "Nihon kara America daitoryo senkyo ni oenshimasho!"

[English]: "Even from Japan, let's support (his) election as American President!"

Further, there are links to three sites. One is put up by a Japanese citizen, Takeshi Kawagoe, stating it is a "support site for the American candidate for peace."

The Federal Election Commission Smoking Gun:

On hitting one of the links, you are directed to a page which SPECIFICALLY solicits a backdoor way to raise funds overseas for the Kucinich Presidential Campaign in Japanese. It is done under the guise of selling his books, and the organizer even recognizes that contributions by foreigners to a presidential campaign is illegal, however, he has arranged for a way for them to get around it via the Kucinich books. He clearly shows the sales of the books assists the presidential campaign and heralds that there has been good success recently in the book sales. Japanese readers are told how much money to send, and are provided a SPECIFIC Japanese bank account number to make their cash donations to the Kucinich Campaign.

The Dennis Kucinich bank account to receive foreign funds from Japanese is: "Harmonix Life Center, Japan Postal Account # 00110-1-114224".

FReepers, conservative American radio talk show hosts, legal lurkers, FBI, FEC, (whomever), have at it, go at it!

This is one pathetic human being. How sad that such an incompetent fool is feted around the country (and world) as a viable candidate for the most prestigious office in the world. How awfully sad! I hope the Dummycrats are proud of this clown.

The FEC would be taking this seriously if the candidate in question wasn't Alfred E. Newman.

KUCINICH Quote from the 1st Dem debate: "We must take the Profit out of Heath Care."

Sound like a socialist to me.

You might want to check the (Pachingo?) parlors to see if there are any Kucinich for President signs.

I don't know. I know one thing. The Libs who read this site worldwide will be making a frantic call to Tokyo to the organizer or his webmaster, even if it is 1:45 a.m. there and they have to wake them out of bed, for them to TAKE DOWN THAT WEBSITE immediately.

Can somebody, anybody out there, archive this asap so it is saved!!?? I'll give anyone private freepmail hints on specifically which pages to save/archive since the links I am referring may come up as meanless symbols in your English only browser.

Again, this page in Japan needs to be archived/cached, saved ASAP. I believe it is indeed a major federal campaign FEC financing illegality and contravenes CFR, too.

Go to file, save as, and put in a file name. "Save as type" should say "web page complete"
